Saint Peter’s University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104 (267) 284-5000.
The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Both the MBA and MSA degrees have received specialized accreditation through the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) located at 11374 Strang Line Road in Lenexa, Kansas, USA.
Applicants seeking admission must have an earned bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university, or hold an equivalent degree from an international institution of higher education.
All applicants must submit an application, official transcripts certifying the bachelor’s degree, a personal statement (500+ words) that addresses the experiences that have led you to pursue a master’s degree at this point in your life and what you see yourself doing professionally upon completion of your master’s degree, two letters of recommendation and current resume. We do not require the GMAT or GRE and there is no application fee.
Admission is based primarily on the documents an applicant has provided so as to demonstrate the necessary preparedness for the successful pursuit of graduate studies. This evidence consists primarily, but not exclusively, in the applicant’s prior academic work, professional accomplishments, as well as their professional goals and aspirations.
The Program may request an interview as part of the admission process. Applicants will be promptly notified of their admission decision, once a complete application documentation is received by the University.
Three 11-week trimesters are offered during the academic year and also a summer trimester. This permits an accelerated attainment of credits over multiple terms instead of two terms in a traditional semester-based academic year. Classes meet once a week for 3 hours and 25 minutes and are awarded 3 credits.
The MBA can be completed in as few as 36 credits if twelve (12) credits are waived for prior courses in disciplines covered in the MBA Core where the applicant achieved a grade of B or higher.
The program can be completed in 18-24 months when taking two courses each trimester, including summer. Most students take two or three courses per trimester. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for the degree to be awarded.
